Yep, Obama never told a dying Indian that they could have medicine to relieve the pain if they would just accept Jesus.

Point taken, but I'd be willing to bet she didn't make her charity conditional....

My point is, our idiot President has done nothing but make flowery speeches, expand the war in Afghanistan and extend the Patriot Act.

Peace Prize???? My ass. Turn off the teleprompter and he's W with a tan.

Let's go for the Exacta and give Bernanke and Geithner the Nobel for Economics.

W with a tan?

Taking talking points from Berlusconi?

But I agree that the peace prize is undeserved. They (White House) seem as equally shocked and surprised. I guess Bono's new album isn't selling enough to warrant his consideration this year. (And the impact on global warming from the biggest stage show ever isn't helping).

I have always thought that middle-aged guys who, without apparent irony, call themselves Bono and The Edge (do his close friends get to call him The?) have to be the most abject wankers imaginable. One of the world's most grossly overrated bands.

Well said...chiming in for a moment while away; appreciated the note the other day, Rob and hope this good morning finds you well.

Knew there'd be something about this big news here so had to check...oh well, look at the list of past winners...

I can think of funnier/more undeserving ones.

Fine -

Replace Mother Teresa with Nelson Mandela and throw a rock at that if he doesn't cause you to resonate contrarian just because.

Contrarian? Why, yes, I am. And here's to Winnie Mandela on next year's short list! (Tire necklaces are all the fashion....)

Sorry, Mother Teresa is one of those "saints" that makes my blood boil. The Missionary Position is an interesting read (and yes, I have my issues with the author).

If nominations are due on 1 February, we are now tossing this thing around based on 2 weeks of work??

Or flowery speeches and hope over substantive accomplishment?

http://nobelprize.org/nomination/peace/process.html

Why does this come to mind?

ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then?
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king!
DENNIS: Listen -- strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin' I was an empereror just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away!

Nice quote! It seems true what Dennis says. However, this was the system in the middle ages. There are loads of other sources on King Arthur who more or less say the same about the problem of legitimazation of kings - especially of King Arthur.
